Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels in sperm from steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were found to be 12.0 ± 1.4 pmol ATP per 106 sperm cells. Sperm were stored at 0–2 °C for up to 72 h under 100 and 21% O2, and 100% N2. The sperm ATP content of samples maintained under 100 and 21% O2 both decreased to about 70 and 50% of initial values after 24 and 72 h, respectively. ATP levels of sperm stored under 100% N2 decreased to 20% of initial values after only 4 h and to less than 10% of initial… CONTINUE READING
